Blogmas Day 11: Oh Christmas Tree!Thursday, December 11, 2014
At the weekend, my parents took down the boxes of Christmas decorations! Since we had an add on at the start of last year, we now have two Christmas trees in the house. One big main one for the presents to go under and a second smaller, pop up one for the dinning room/conservatory. This year, I decided to decorate the smaller of the two!
With my tree, I kept it quite simple with a red/silver colour palette with handmadey looking decorations. All of the decorations I picked up after Christmas last year and my recent Tiger addition were popped on my tree.
On the main tree, my mum decorated it with a similar kind of colour palette by complete accident and filled it up with all our classic tree decorations, plus new additions from over the years. My favourite thing about our tree is that every year since my 1st Christmas, I have had at least one decoration for Christmas from my parents. I can't exactly which one was for which year but they do hold fond memories. I love the fact that my 1st Christmas is still intact apart from part of the text being rubbed off.
There's a load of other little nick nacks around our house that my mum has bought or been given over the years and they do give a lot more character. I have to say I do love some more than others- especially recent ones as they are a lot more contemporary and rusticy looking!
How do you decorate your house for Christmas?
